A Modern day Wilderness Journey
We are the children of the African Diaspora and as a result of our holocaust, we are nationally and globally marginalized in our collective identity and contribution to the planet as a people. Now when our focal point is fixed on our African-American Diaspora experience, the narrative that is written in the colors of the RED WHITE and BLUE still has a blatant disregard for the life of the RED BLACK and GREEN that lives in us. This is evident in the lives of Treyvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Gardner … and the list continues. How many generations will we allow to inherit the genocidal disposition of powerlessness.
Our future calls for a generation immersed in the cultural awareness of Black Consciousness, utilizing the reservoir of resources while being governed by the desire to for fill our divine responsibility to obtain self-determination.
Pulling from the historical pages of biblical witness, we need to be like Moses who took a concentrated period of time to implement a process that would erode the Mark of Slavery in the mindset on an entire generation. As a Pan-African community, can we commit to the concept of harvesting our infinite fields of intellect, spiritual disciplines, cultural traditions, and economic blessings to raise a generation rooted in the preservation of everything good about us as a people.
Imagine … every black child in elementary, middle, high school and college seeking a well-rounded higher education for the sake of liberation … our possibilities become limitless. I dare you to allow your thoughts to dream of a better community. I challenge you heart to fall more in love with the plight of our people. And I implore you to move to act upon the support of our youth.
